Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

JMU offers a strong community, with students displaying an overwhelming amount of pride. You'll find you will love this school simply because every other student carries that same love. This sense of spirit is infectious. Harrisonburg has been named the "friendly city" by students, faculty, parents, and townfolk, and it’s no surprise why. Each year offers unique experiences that keep you coming back for more. JMU might not be charmed with the best football team in college history, but with the overwhelming amount of pride and zeal displayed at each game, it seems the perfect team for a enthusiastic school.

One pitfall might be the lack of nearby attractions or activities to enjoy on a weekend night. This can result in a many people resorting to parties as their means of entertainment. While Harrisonburg is by no means urbanized, you'll find some of your best memories on the nights you spend with your peers. Whichever friend group you click into, you'll find a little piece of yourself on this campus.
